Residents: Dorchester Buildings Set Ablaze By Fireworks

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Fireworks may be to blame for a four-alarm in Dorchester early Friday morning, according to residents. About 20 people were displaced.

The fire started around 1:30 a.m. on Mount Everett Street, which damaged two, three-family buildings.

A woman who lives in one of the buildings said someone was lighting fireworks on a back porch, causing the fire that then spread to her building.

“My nephew woke me up. And he saw the sparks from his window because his bedroom is on this side of the house. So, he saw the fire,” the woman said.

The American Red Cross assisted.

It’s estimated that the fire caused about $1 million in damages.
